    Trying to find replacements for these plastics clips that hold the door rods up in the middle of the rod. When I search for them all I can find are the clips that go at the end of the rods.

    This has been asked before. I think the only suggestion was to make your own using zip ties and a small piece of tubing.

    You might be able to find a 3D print file for those. Dealer doesn't stock them any more that I am aware of. Probably ran out!

    Just brought these from my local dealer a few months ago. Struggled to find with the awful new toyota parts website, but I believe what you're after is a Lock Rod Clamp - Toyota (69749-89101)

    Small j-hook or eye-hook might work better and last longer anyway. Just put them in the dimpled part of the door to the left to adjust for the added depth

    I wonder if something like this would work:

    It depends on how much it sticks out from the sheet metal, I suppose.

    I would pop out those two plugs and just run a zip tie loop between those two holes....and just run the rods thru that....

    NO big deal...
